The complex system of white matter fibres that relay information in the brain has been accurately recreated in a 3D-printed model.
It's been tested on only a handful of kids, but using MRI with a diagnostic dye to look for cancer may work just as well as using PET and CT scans.
When it comes to detecting cancer, ultrasound is simply too low-res to compare with CT scans and MRIs. Up the resolution, though, and the less expensive, radiation-free alternative could become an ideal alternative.
The goal of the cloud-computing project is to let physicians and radiologists "google" a brain scan to find patients with similar abnormalities, review their anonymous medical records, and improve both diagnosis and treatment.
Harvard scientists create an interface that allows humans to move a rat's tail just by thinking about it.
Mobile MIM lets physicians use an iPad or iPhone to measure distances and image intensity in CT, PET, MRI, and other scans, as well as display measurement lines and notes.
Researchers say the tech, which could help spot heart disease, multiple sclerosis, specific cancers, and more, may make MRI scans a standard procedure during annual exams.
Researchers at UCLA digitize rapid diagnostic tests to test for diseases such as HIV, malaria, and tuberculosis with less user error.
Brain scans of astronauts who were in space for lengthy periods suggest a significant occurrence of a condition that can affect vision.
A review of 10+ years of imaging studies finds that PET scans can safely and accurately detect various forms of dementia.
